Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted during the kharif season 2016 at the Crop Research farm of Agronomy, Naini Agricultural Institute, SHUATS, Allahabad (U.P.) to study the effect of organic and inorganic nutrient under different planting density of kharif pearlmillet (Pennisetum glaucum L.). The experiment consisted of three planting density viz., 30 x 15 cms, 40 x 15 cms, 50 x 15 cms and four combined application of organic and inorganic sources of nitrogen viz., 100% RDN (80 kg ha-1 N, 40 kg ha-1 P, 40 kg ha-1 K), 75 % RDN (80 kg ha-1 N, 40 kg ha-1 P, 40 kg ha-1 K), + 25 % FYM, 50 % RDN (80 kg ha-1 N, 40 kg ha-1 P, 40 kg ha-1 K), + 50% FYM, 25 % RDN (80 kg ha-1 N, 40 kg ha-1 P, 40 kg ha-1 K), + 75 % FYM was laid out in randomized block design with three replications. The result revealed that treatment (T11) 50 x 15 cms + 50 % RDN + 50 % FYM produced significantly the highest plant height at 60 DAS (171.59 cm) and 80 DAS (174.62 cm), dry weight at 20 DAS (0.92 g hill-1), 40 DAS (13.17 g hill-1), 60 DAS (71.35 g hill-1) and 80 DAS (81.79 g hill-1), grain yield (3.70 t ha-1) and significantly higher length of ear (29.37 cm) and test weight (12.11 g) respectively. However significantly higher strover yield (8.99 t ha-1) was obtained in treatment (T1) 30 x 15 cms + 100 % RDN (80 kg ha-1 N, 40 kg ha-1 P, 40 kg ha-1 K).
